The objective for this Post-Doc position is to instrument a bearing test rig with optical fibre sensors for measuring the pressure and temperature in the roller bearings’ thin lubricant film during operation. The offered job post is situated in the strategic basic research project CONTACTLUB, funded by the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO-Vlaanderen).
The objective for this Post-Doc position is to combine innovative photonic crystal fibre technologies with the peculiar nonlinear optical properties of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) to allow a new generation of second harmonic generation (SHG) microscopy. The offered job post is situated in the multidisciplinary research project CHARMING, funded by the Belgian EOS (Excellence of Science) programme and involving 7 partners with B-PHOT member prof. Francis Berghmans as project coordinator. More information can be found on the project website: http://www.eos-charming.be
In the frame of a bilateral research project with the Taiyuan University of Technology (China) funded by the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO-Vlaanderen) and the National Science Foundation China (NSFC), the PhD candidate will develop integrated micro-lasers coupled with a deformed micro-disk cavity. The target of this project is to create a compact on-chip system that will be able to generate ultra-wide bandwidth optical chaos. The candidate will then exploit and evaluate the performances of the obtained behaviour for standard chaos-based applications.
The PhD candidate will carry out his/her work in frame of the FIONA project, funded by the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO-Vlaanderen). We want to investigate a radically new approach for interrogating optical fibre sensors, taking advantage of the high sensitivity of laser diodes to external perturbations.
